Accurate communication helps: - companies to sell more products and services, gain more customers, share financial results with interested parties, and ensure that health, safety and environmental information and technical instructions can be easily understood; - institutions and organisations to share information; - researchers to be published, understood and obtain funding; - publishers to sell their books and journal articles; - news sources to disseminate information to their readership.
Through my company, Cathryn Primrose-Mathisen, I have been providing scientific, technical and medical language editing (copy-editing and proofreading) services to companies, institutions, organisations and researchers around the world since 2010. Previously, I pursued a successful 14-year career with Fugro (www.geos.com and www.oceanor.com) with postings in Singapore, Houston (USA) and Trondheim (Norway) and roles including operations manager, sales and project manager, and senior oceanographer. I was involved in metocean measurement and real-time monitoring projects and also completed many fieldwork visits installing and servicing instrumentation on moorings and offshore platforms, as well as analysing and reporting the results and presenting them at conferences. I worked with different clients including energy companies, governmental organisations and universities. The broad commercial and technical experience I acquired prepared me well for running my own business. You can find more information about my experience and services on my LinkedIn profile. If you have any questions, I would love to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org.
